Increasing consumer concerns of harmful preservatives have intensified consumers' demand for natural and organic alternatives. In response to this demand, uncured or no-nitrate-or-nitrite-added meat products which utilize celery juice concentrates as an alternative to sodium nitrite, have emerged on the market to replace conventional nitrite sources. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of celery juice pH for the impact of nitrite on L. monocytogenes growth. In addition, equal concentrations of nitrite in celery juice and conventional nitrite were evaluated to determine the impact of nitrite concentration from these sources on L. monocytogenes growth. These objectives were ...
